How putting off a hearing check could cost you more in the long run

The cost of living is affecting everyone at the moment, but putting off a hearing check could cost you more in the long run. 

Specsavers Audiology wants to raise awareness of the importance of hearing health and encourage people to look after and value their hearing (to save on health costs down the road).

If you already have hearing aids, here are some ways to look after them and prolong their life:

  • Always handle your hearing aids with care. Wash your hands before handling your hearing aids.
  • Store your hearing aids in a safe, dry place away from children and pets and turn off your hearing aids when you are not using them. 
  • Periodically clean the battery contacts and remove any visible earwax or debris with a clean cloth. Change filters or wax guards to remove wax and dirt that may deter sound quality.
  • Schedule routine checks with your audiology professional for professional cleanings. Don't wear your hearing aids in the shower, while swimming or while using a hair dryer or hair spray.
